Hi Promise Community School Families!
As a community school, we place importance in making sure our families are connected to resources and information in our community. Throughout the school year, we share a compiled list of resources from BakerRipley and other places in Houston every 1-2 weeks. These are not always resources that the school district is directly responsible for so we share contact information so that you can follow up with the appropriate people.
This week's resources include information on food fairs, rental assistance, legal aid and more.
